SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION IN THE
Caenorhabditis elegans interacts with its environment by sensing chemicals, touch, and temperature; genetic analysis of each of these responses has led to the identification of candidate signaling molecules within sensory neurons. A molecular model for touch sensation has emerged from studies of the...
The homeodomain protein hmbx-1 maintains asymmetric gene expression in adult C. elegans olfactory neurons.
We characterize these opposing influences on gene expression in Caenorhabditis elegans olfactory neurons. Using transcriptional reporters that are expressed differentially in two olfactory neurons, AWC(ON) and AWC(OFF), we identify mutations that affect the long-term maintenance of appropriate chemo...
